Preparation for
Your Video Visit

Follow the simple instructions below on how to join your annual health evaluation ONLINE.

Instead of a clinician coming to your home, you will join a video meeting on a smartphone, tablet, or computer (similar to Zoom or Facetime).

First, do you have the right technology?

Keeping you healthy at home

You may have been contacted by your health plan about scheduling a home health visit. During these visits, an experienced doctor or nurse travels to your home on the day and time you schedule at your convenience. They sit with you face-to-face to discuss the care and support you need to maintain good health and well-being. Based on your preferences, we can also schedule telehealth appointments rather than meet in your home.
